EVENTS

For those of you not lucky enough to have attended or didn’t see the live streaming on facebook from the Ospreys, here’s the full video of the Q&A session we held with Andrew Millward, Brad Davies, Bradley Davies, Hugh Gufstafson and Rhodri Jones.

If you want to know about the Ospreys player development pathway to the elite squad or what’s really going on with the American investors, or, if you want to know how the new signings are fitting into every day life at the Ospreys, or what they think of their former colleagues, or even the players’ views on how much rugby they play in a season, its all in here PLUS much more.

We would like to thank the Pavilion, Llandarcy for hosting the event and to the Ospreys management and players involved this evening for their time and enthusiasm.

Home meet

grd_logo_unionbordeauxbeglesSo you are not one of the lucky ones going to support the lads away at Bordeaux and are wondering what shall I do and where shall I watch the game.  You are probably thinking I don’t have Sky or wouldn’t it be great to watch with a bunch of other supporters.

Well now if you don’t have Sky you can watch the game with like-minded supporters as we have teamed up with The Pavilion (click here to view their website) who will be showing all European Rugby Champions Cup away games for us.

This is a great venue, situated halfway between Neath and Swansea. It has plenty of parking if you wish to drive or if not you can get a train to Neath and taxi over for around £5.

EPRCIt has everything you need, it is family friendly has several screens to watch the game, fabulous food and of course a well-stocked bar and as an added bonus all season ticket members will receive 10% discount on their food bill (drinks excluded), so ensure you take your season ticket with you.

So if you fancy coming along please let us know by emailing annette@ospreyssupportersclub.com with your name and number in the party.

We will require confirmation no later than 15th December so we can book the required space for all.

2015 Kit Launch Shirts

 

Ospreys fans gathered at the Liberty stadium to see the players hit the catwalk for the launch of the 2015/16 Kit.

2015 Kit Launch Oh Dear GodIt looks like BLK have hit the mark this year as a select few hit the catwalk, supported by the relieved bulk of the squad who watched alongside supporters from the back of the huge marquee erected for the event.  It’s fair to say that whilst some may have been slightly shy, Matthew Dwyer strutted and vogued in style, much to the surprise of nobody.

Before the launch, the squad played tennis & cricket with some of the younger element of the crowd & the OSC helped host the Ospreys Wheel of Fortune. The main event was hosted by Kevin Johns, entertaining supporters in style as some lucky younger Ospreys fans accompanied players down the catwalk.

The home shirt, modeled by Lloyd Laura Ashley and Dan Pouting Evans sees a return to black which went down very well with the crowd – after all #ourbloodisblack.

After the shirt launch, the club shop was swamped with supporters keen to sort the latest in Ospreylian fashion.  Players hung about in the marquee and shop giving fans the opportunity to collect autographs and pictures.

Here’s some pictures from the day and also the Ospreys ‘behind the scenes’ video.  For more pictures, have a look on our facebook page and the Ospreys website and shop.

Now all we need is some more rugby action!

Matavesi XV cheque presentationA few of the OSC made the long journey to Camborne to support a fundraising day organised by Sireli Matavesi’s family.  It gave our chairman, Nigel Jones the opportunity to present a cheque for £400 to Josh & his brothers.

We would like to thank the Ospreys and Glasgow Warriors supporters who bought tickets for the charity raffle carried out in the Riverside Bar after our last home game of the season.

Details of the event can be found at the Matavesi XV v Camborne RFC facebook page. Further details of the day can be found on the Cornish Rugby Updates facebook photo album.

The game also remembered the sad passing of the great Jerry Collins & his wife Alana Madill.

A minute’s silence was held before kickoff and a few travelling Ospreys supporters showed their respect by wearing Ospreys shirts from JC’s time with the team marked “COLLINS 6”.

The OSC are excited to announce our first (official, organised) social night for 5 years!

The event is being held in the Railmens’ Club on Wind Street, Swansea – just 5 minutes walk from both the bus and train stations and right at the heart of the city’s nightlife.  It’s a great opportunity to get together socially for a chat, relax with a few drinks and enjoy some live music from D-Fibs.

It’s planned for the night before our crucial European match against Northampton Saints RFC so we extend a warm welcome to all Ospreys supporters, friends and families as well as Northampton Saints travelling support!

Entertainment:

D-Fibs Rock Covers Band

We’ll have live music from the brilliant D-Fibs – a local rock covers band who “play everything from rock’n roll to things that’ll make your ears bleed and your granny cry”.

The band have plenty of sporting connections featuring a Welsh athletics record holder, a former Neath, Swansea and Wales Students Rugby International and less importantly an OSC committee member.

Charity Raffle – big prizes!

What else you ask, well once a year we like to hold a raffle where all proceeds go to a notable cause linked to rugby. This year we have taken the decision to hold this on the 27th where we can be assured of a big crowd.

This year all proceeds from the raffle will go to two worthy recipients who have both visited the Riverside this season; The Welsh Wheelchair and Welsh Deaf rugby teams. We are sure you agree both deserved of our support.

As this is a charity raffle we will have some great prizes including:

signed shirt xmas• Signed Ospreys jersey framed by House of Frames

• A total of £40 of vouchers  from Frankie & Bennys (T’s & C’s apply)

• £20 money off voucher from Pizzeria Vesuvio

• Box of cupcakes from Candyfloss Cakes in Pontarddulais

• Meal for 2 with a bottle of Prosecco in the Commercial Inn Killay

• An oven clean from Cleanworx

• Cut and blow dry voucher for Floyds Hairdresser, Port Tennant road

• Champagne (presented to the OSC by  XV Ciel et Blanc – Racing Metro’s supporters club)

Tickets will be on sale pre and post-match in The Riverside and also for those supporters in the 2003 Club see your OSC rep there who will be only too happy to sell you a raffle ticket.

We know how generous the Osprey Supporters are and will once again buy lots of tickets to help support these two teams
See you all Saturday
